I hope everyone had a great Monday! Like I mentioned earlier I wanted to share with you some of my weekend discoveries and purchases, 5 in particular.
This protein powder is seriously ahhmazing! It doesn’t have any weird or chalky after tastes. Both the vanilla and chocolate flavors are great, although my favorite is the chocolate hands down. I’ve been combining 1/2 the packet of chocolate pp with 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 T extra dark cocoa powder, 8-9 ice (or frozen almond milk) wedges or cubes, 1/2 a frozen banana, and a pinch or two of arrowroot. Its chocolate heaven.
This is the vanilla version:
Same ingredients as the chocolate version except using the vanilla pp in place of the chocolate and replacing the cocoa powder with peanut flour. Btw, I’m not really sure what those orange specks are…its in the chocolate pp too so I’m guessing its something good for you. I promise you can’t taste it at all!
I cut into my first watermelon of the season! Sweet and juicy and reminds me of summer. I took this picture this afternoon and the bowl is already half gone. I can down watermelon like its air.
Afternoon! I’ve been busy running around all morning/afternoon with errands and airport drop offs, but I did manage to make it to my Monday strength stability stretch class, about 8 mins late, but I still made it!
After my workout I refueled myself with basically the same breakfast as yesterday, except this time I added two egg whites rather than one and I added flax to my toppings and switched out the raspberries with strawberries. I know what you’re thinking…I totally live on the edge, yeah? haha It may be boring, but its delicious! I think I enjoyed it even more today than I did yesterday.
See how white it is? The two egg whites basically combined everything together and it became a smooth mixture of scrumptious-ness. Oh and see those strawberries in there? Can you believe that was the equivalent of half a strawberry?
Now you can believe it! I set it up next to my iPhone for you to compare. I think this batch of strawberries was on steroids or something because the majority of them were that large. Craze.
Did you have a good weekend? Mine was fairly laid back and quite relaxing. I went shopping with my sister yesterday for some prom/graduation parties/senior & sports banquets accessories – mainly shoes and jewelry. It made me feel like such an oldie. I think senior year was by far my favorite year in high school. Especially my 2nd semester when I did absolutely nothing except for attending senior festivities. Those were the good ol days.
She ended up finding these heels. Can you say instant growth? I think she went from almost 5’4″ to over 5’8″.
They’re a neutral gold color that goes with most of her party outfits. A girl can never have too many pairs of shoes
I also made a couple of other purchases/discoveries this weekend which I’ll share with you later. Hope your week is off to a great start!
